With myriad world-class restaurants and cafés in Bali, you may be forgiven for piling on a few extra pounds. Yet being on holiday doesn’t have to mean a halt to a your fitness programme, as the Villas Shinta Dewi in Seminyak and Ubud both have air-conditioned gyms with high-spec equipment including treadmills, stationery bikes, and weights.
Within the separate massage room, guests may also enjoy a selection of spa treatments carried out by fully trained therapists from a reputable local spa (extra charges will apply).
Here’s a sample of what’s on the menu:
Release built up tension with a traditional Balinese massage. Using a combination of gentle stretches, acupressure and aromatherapy oils to stimulate the flow of blood, oxygen and energy around your body, you will feel totally relaxed in no time.
Foot reflexology is a natural healing art based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet which correspond to every part of the body. Through application of pressure on these reflexes tension is relieved and circulation improved leaving you feeling balanced.
Our hands and feet work hard for us every day but rarely get the attention they deserve. Treat them to a manicure or pedicure, which usually comes with the added bonus of a quick hand or foot massage.
